Kleos Space S.A. (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1) has received its first South American pre-order, secured by regional expert Pierre Duquesne who was engaged in July 2019.
Pierre Duquesne, a Franco-German executive, was the former Managing Director for Airbus Intelligence in South America and has more than 20 years’ experience in the Regional Space Industry.
Kleos Space’s independent data solutions will provide defence, security and commercial users with access to a cost-effective daily geolocation intelligence to guard borders, protect assets and save lives. The Corporacion Andina de Fomento (CAF), the Latin American Development bank, suggests the outlook by 2040 for the maritime and port sector in Latin America and the Caribbean with an attractive environment for growth with planned investments over 45 billion euros in the coming decade.
Kleos’ RF Reconnaissance data products are available in three levels — Guardian RF, Guardian LOCATE and Guardian UDT. Kleos will start processed data delivery through its Guardian LOCATE Product. The multi-satellite Scouting Mission system will form the foundation of a constellation that delivers a global picture of hidden maritime activity, enhancing the intelligence capability of government and commercial entities when AIS (Automatic Identification System) is defeated, imagery is unclear, or targets are out of patrol range.
The first scouting mission is comprised of 4x smallsats built by GomSpace in Denmark, each the size of a shoebox.
Kleos’ CEO Andy Bowyer said the company is pleased at the rapid progress the company was able to make, thanks to Pierre in the short time since his engagement as the firm’s representative for the South American market. Kleos continues to pursue pre-orders as the company eagerly anticipates the launch of the Kleos’ Scouting Mission in Q4 this year.
